I would check that the text is valid and then return the cursor to the cell (and blank it out, if necessary) if the check determined the text to be invalid.

Check out the event:

DBGrid1_BeforeColUpdate

In this event , you can validate the new value, track the old value, and cancell the update if your validation requires it !!

hope this would help!!

The event
BeforeColUpdate(ByVal ColIndex As Integer, OldValue As Variant, Cancel As Integer)

is triggered just before data is accepted by the grid and then the focus moves to somewhere else.

The parameter ColIndex is the id of the column in the Columns collection and indicates the field being edited.

Parameter OldValue is obviously the previous value of the cell and Cancel is a boolean variable that can be set to true in order to prevent the grid from accepting the value entered by the user and moving to next cell or somewhere else.

Now this is how you get the value that the user entered:

Dim Text as string

Text = dbgrid1.Columns(ColIndex).Text


(If you need info about the current row you can use the rowbookmark dbgrid1.RowBookmark(dbgrid1.Row) in any way you like.)

Finaly you have to do your validation:
select case colindex
   case constMyValidationColumnID
        if not text like sMypattern then cancel=true
   case else
end select

Dear Sidneym,

Sorry if it is so, I am new here and saw no info about getting current value and I think it is not obvious that you have to read the grid text to get it, although it is necessary for the validation of data.

But if you still feel I should withdraw the answer send an email to gkakas@otenet.gr  and I will do it immediatelly.

Yours sincerelly George Kakaletris
